|2016-09-08 19:00:00 (link to chat)||Thanks for the chat George. Can you rank the following young SPs based on talent (exlcuding proximity to majors)? Trevor Clifton, Jack Flaherty, Jaime Schultz, Touki Toussaint. Can I also get your thoughts on the good Basabe brother, and how he compares to other good young OFs (e.g. Acuna, Whitley, Sierra, Mieses, Robles)? GO SOX!|

|You got it Anthony! This is a group of starters that I think will all end up in the bullpen, especially Schultz and Toussaint. If I had to pick one, I guess it would be Clifton. I haven't seen Basabe in-person yet, I'm planning on it once he reaches Double-A Portland (in my neck of the woods). The numbers are impressive and he seems like an incredible athlete that is starting to translate those skills into tangible on-field production. I put Robles and Acuna in a higher class than almost any prospect left in the minors. Those two are both top-10-to-15 fantasy prospects for me right now. (George Bissell)|

|They'll be able to both bridge that gap by way of having the finance to get someone if a hole arises, and/or do some Cubs magic and find that guy internally already and we just aren't talking about him.
I would throw Trevor Clifton somewhere into this mix--not as dominant top pitching prospect, but a name to be aware of. Certainly the story is they focused on hitters the last few drafts, and that's served them well. (Adam McInturff)
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
